The first two weeks are training and I'm very anxious. I had to quit my last job due to extreme nervousness and panic attacks. Now I'm on medication and going to therapy, so I think I will be ok, but I'm still worried about fitting it and feeling comfortable. It's been 6 months since I last worked, so I'm kind of out of it right now. Anyone have any pointers? I hope there are some friendly people there. At my last job I felt everyone was hard to talk to and didn't give a Fuc*. Hopefully the CBT positive self talk with get me through this. Anyways, I'm a bit stressed now, so any advice you have for me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'm probably not the best person to give advice, given that I have been jobless for going on 5 months now, but at my last (and only) job, I was extremely shy and nervous so I just nodded my head and said simple 'yes' and 'no' answers at first. I managed to be a very good worker in the end. That job was the best thing that happened for me and my shyness, because I was finally talking more. But over the past month of being unemployed, I think I am back to the beginning... Good luck, don't let the anxiety take you down.

Thanks guys, it went pretty well. I was a little quiet, but my anxiety was under control, so I was happy about that.
